National Model United Nations (NMUN) conferences are held annually in New York City and Washington, DC. Every year over 5,000 college/university students, more than half from outside the United States, come to New York City in spring to discuss current global issues. This year, TH Köln took part for the first time in the NMUN Conference which was held in New York from 18th to 22nd March, 2017.

Each University was given a ‘country assignment’ and TH Köln got selected to work for the country assignment ‘Nepal’ in the head delegation of our PhD Candidate Amrita Gautam. Though there were 10 delegates in the initial phase of selection, only 3 delegates could attend the conference and actively participate due to the US Ban for 7 Muslim countries and some other travel issues. Nevertheless, 6 delegates from ITT submitted the position papers for the committees GA1, GA2, UNDP, UNEA, UNICEF and WHO. At the conference, the delegates covered various relevant topics for the member state Nepal including the mitigation of public health effects of climate change, access to clean and safe water, the promotion of the social inclusion of children, the implementation of the Paris Agreement, the sustainable use of the oceans, seas and marin resources, as well the improvement in coordination of health services in outbreaks and emergencies.

In addition, the representatives of TH Köln attended the NMUN NY Opportunity Fair on 21st March to promote and provide information regarding the master programs and events of ITT for the interested participants in the given time-frame.
